**Update: 2016 August 16** One of the accounts I follow on Instagram recently asked me if beet puree can be used in place of the beet powder. I looked into this some via the interwebs and found that, yes, you can use beet puree but that the color it imparts to the chicken will not hold up to grilling. I don’t know if the same holds true to sous vide, but will endeavor to try it out. If any of you decide to try it, please share your results in the comments below!
